From a Friend

Standard

I have so many mail exchanges to show you,I can’t believe how slow I’ve been!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!

New post box

Standard

After getting a bit of a bash when the lawn was being mowed a few months ago, our mail box had never been the same. We finally decided we needed a new one, so I thought I’d show you all.

Outgoing Postcrossings

Standard

I’ve said this before, but I do like to try and find things that people say theyΒ like on their Postcrossing profile.

Often I remember photos that I’ve taken or my own art and turn them into postcards. Here are some that I’ve tried to match up with peoples likes.

Andrea in Germany likes to see cities and Emi in Japan wanted local views.Andrea Germany Emi Japan
Max and Hannah in China like Architecture and Katerina is an artist, likes bright colours and flowers and so that one has gone off to Germany.Max & Hanna China Katerina Ukraine
Miao and Mose in USA like architecture (I sent this again because it’s an impressive building) and Christine in Germany said she likes industrial harbours and big ships, so I remembered this photo I’d taken of these impressive bouys.to Mieo & Mose USA Christine Germany

I hope they will be happy with my choices for them πŸ™‚
